is no question on social issues whether it's women's healthcare or immigration. there was asset of issues that for younger voters was important to think about the kind of country and kind of president they wanted representing them. so on all those questions people wrestled carefully. i think that's why ultimately enough people in enough battleground states chose the president to continue this journey we're on. quickly in terms of demoggrafi. we don't know this for sure but we could be seeing different elections in on years and off years. the election in 2014 is going to be different than presidential lecktorts. and the comments i made were predicated on what we thought would happen in a presidential election. you had latinos turning out. the president won the cuban vote. the first time infer florida. you saw young voters actually exceeding in most states their turnout from four years ago to the surprise of most analyst. you saw african turn out even though the excitement was four years ago, you saw a real determination there to support the president and you saw african-american ris

father's legacy over civil rights will grow with time. healthcare though is a specific part of your father's legacy that we are now debating in real-time. what are your thoughts about the debate we are having given your father's accomplishments in that area? >> there are a lot of people from both parties who work together. that was a time when the country, even if you disagreed with someone, you wanted government to work. [applause] we have this feeling of gotcha. this is going to hurt you kind of thing rather than talking about issues and saying you want this and i want. can't we find a middle ground? can't we find a way to agree on things and do what we agree upon? we lived in a glory time. -- gory time. it was pretty generic. it is not very nice now. i am glad my husband is out of politics. i would not want to be in it now. one of the things that susan and i have found and i found this with julie and the other presidential children, i think that we have been there and we know what it is like. to some extent i think we protected each other. we sympathize, at least i have tried not

that really have showing some real promise. >> there is an aal ji to healthcare. these are essential to our economy right now. and it seesms they are going to involve a big government role because the private sector isn't going to always do them. but right now it seems like they don't have what market discipline can provide. they don't have a t lot of accountability or competition. sit right to think of it what we want to do is inject more competition into higher education or is that not the right way to think of the problem? >> absolutely we want to put more competition in. i don't think it will be the type of competition you see in restaurants where lots of them go out of business and the ones who are good create a chain and are big. you won't see that because the ability to have somebody new come in -- the acreddation people make it almost impossible for somebody new to come in. so what you will see is share shifting if you have the right measures between the right actors. so competition in the stheans university presidents are competitive, not to maximize profit but the
